Emergency Food Tips

  1. Buy small size containers or individually packaged food items.

  2. Buy foods that are nutritious but don't necessarily taste good so you won't be tempted to break into your food locker when your daily supplies are running low or to satisfy your sweet tooth.

  3. Check your food locker regularly. Don't keep foods passed their expiration dates.

  4. Pack a separate food container for your car.

  5. Keep emergency supply kits and equipment such as flashlights, fresh batteries, candles, matches, blankets, first aid kits and any other supplies you may need.

  

Emergency Food In The Car

Food that you keep in your car should be sufficient to last 3 days (minimum).

 

Emergency Food In The Home

Food supplies in your home should be sufficient to last two weeks (minimum). Your food supply should include a variety of prepared foods, meals ready to eat (MRE), canned meats, canned fruits, canned vegetables, grains, canned milk products, soup and water.

 

If an earthquake, hurricane, winter storm, or other disaster strikes your community, you might not have access to food, water, and electricity for days or even weeks. By taking some time now to store emergency food and water supplies, you can provide for your entire family.

As you stock food, take into account your family's unique needs and tastes. Familiar foods are important. They lift morale and give a feeling of security in times of stress. Try to include foods that they will enjoy and that are also high in calories and nutrition. Foods that require no refrigeration, water, special preparation, or cooking are best.

During and after a disaster, it is vital that you maintain your strength. Remember the following: w Eat at least one well-balanced meal each day. w Drink enough liquid to enable your body to function properly (two quarts or a half gallon per day). w Take in enough calories to enable you to do any necessary work. w Include vitamin, mineral, and protein supplements in your stockpile to ensure adequate nutrition.
